I have a 40 TFSI A5 (pre-facelift).

I'd actually say the interior is nice - not new A6 nice, but still very well put together and fairly high rent. The ride is harsh on sports suspension, though, and the steering is the numbest I have every encountered - zero feedback through it. The TFSI engine is smooth, right up to the redline and fairly brisk. It's very very economical on a steady motorway run.

Basically it's good transport, but it's without any kind of soul.
this sort of thing has been the general theme of criticism the A5 has had since it was first released. You could argue an A4 would be a better option.

Demand for leasing seems to be mega high at the moment, but I do wonder if the lack of deals/car availability is going to set it back a few years.
as discussed, people are of course going to have to find other solutions. However, not many of those will come with a lengthy time commitment. I am ready to go when anything really good comes up, that i want.

I'd have the A4 Black Edition over the A5 S-Line without a doubt, but I'm bored of Audis now and hoping my 330d will be confirmed today.

My A4 Avant 2020 has loads of rattles and the auto wipers and high beam are not great, I also drive a 2018 Nissan Qashqai alot and that has no rattles and auto wipers and lights alot better. I'm glad I have the A4 on lease as I would of been well annoyed if I had forked out £38k for it.

Worst thing about Audi, without a doubt, is VWFS. Awful, awful, awful.

Though the weird electrical gremlins were interesting - lock the car and all four windows dropped. Unlock it and they closed. That problem then just disappeared as quickly as it arrived.

Anyway, yeah, sorry, leases. Carry on.

Yeah i think I'm going to hold off on it for a few months to be honest and see if any deals come up post Covid. Ideally a 3 Series Touring or something similar would be great but will have to wait and see if the deals improve!

We have just had a baby and the VW UP! which was great for our commute is now too small as we need space for the pram the dog and the baby, so it's time to get a bigger car.

After being disappointed by two lease companies who advertised a Scoda Scala for a bargain price who then couldn't secure that price with their suppliers we have started looking for something else.

The budget is pretty tight what with the little one arriving and the maternity pay being low so we need a decent family car for about £180 a month with less than £2k upfront.

The boot must be big enough for a decent sized pram as well.

I've found a Honda HR-V 1.5 i-VTEC S (details below) and what I suppose I'm asking from you as I'm in no way an expert is this a good deal or should I keep looking?

£5.6k over term for a £21k car, and it's not even 10k miles. Doesn't seem like a good deal at all unless I'm missing something.

What about a Qashqai ? 2 year deal, then change it perhaps if circumstances change/need more room, etc

What would depreciation be over 4 years on a 21k car?...

@HMG1K Do you have a contact at huddersfield ? The S line sportback is no longer listed and I've tried and enquiry through whatcar and they are taking an age to get back to me.
Im dealing with Michael. My car has been ready for about a month, getting it next Thursday. Had to wait for a plate retention via VWFS via BCA. The department has been closed since before furlough. VWFS allowing customers to do it themselves and save the £60 admin fee each change / retention of plate.

Miles on my A5 Sportback S-Line 35 TDI on a 3+23 for £292 with metallic white paint is 6k pa with 9 ppm Inc VAT. My 2018 A5 going back has done 10k in the last two years. This revised A5 has circa £4k of kit as standard now compared to 2018. And S5 alloys from the 2019MY are now standard on S-Line while the new S5 gets new alloy design!

Audi have lent me a 4.0tdi A5 Sportback while our A6 is with them. The A5 is without doubt the worst car I've ever driven. Save yourself the phone call. Explains why they are/were cheap to lease.
I had an S5 lease, loved it. My Leon Cupra went in for warranty work they gave me an A5 S line diesel and I didn't like it at all to drive. I couldn't believe it was so similar in appearance to my S5.

What do people expect from a bog standard diesel? Spend the cash if you want performance

Well the Evoque arrived and the lease company and the supplying dealer said no experience day as it’s a lease, nice surprise when we had an experience day fall through the letterbox today.
